Palm Springs motorcycle accident lawyer & attorney – Riverside County, CA
Unfortunately, in our experience, alcohol has been through the years a large part in many of the accidents our clients get in. Our Palm Springs motorcycle accident lawyer & attorney has talked to countless bikers who aren’t sure what they should do because they got hit while they were inebriated.
According to The California Department of Traffic Safety the percentage of motorcycle operators killed with a blood alcohol content (BAC) of 0.08 or greater increased from 23 percent in 2009 to 27 percent in 2010.
Most of our clients who’ve been drinking are not truly drunk. They’ve had a beer or two. And the accidents were not their fault. Still, the insurance company will look for any reason to deny their claim and being drunk and speeding are on the top of their list. Their argument is that even if you aren’t legally drunk, alcohol will impact your driving, your judgment, impair your visual skills, reduce your reaction time and more.
It’s become a cliché but if you are driving just don’t drink and if you drink, catch a ride home. Don’t be a motorcycle accident statistic. The truth of the matter is that there’s a huge bias against bikers to begin with but a drunken biker will find it very hard to prevail in a case.
